Gamespot: Plants vs. Zombies Review

Plants and zombies aren't exactly what you'd call natural enemies, given the latter's single-minded hunger for brains and the former's complete lack thereof. Despite being brainless, plants apparently appreciate the hand that waters them, so when zombie hordes come to eat your brains, it's Plants vs. Zombies. To protect your own gray matter, you create defensive fortifications around your house by cultivating a wide variety of cute, combat-ready plants to handle the goofy varieties of zombie attackers. Plants vs. Zombies is solidly rooted in the tower defense genre, but it grows and branches in such a charming, accessible way that almost anyone can pick it up and have a lot of fun.

The Good:
* Clever array of plants and zombies
* Charming visuals and music
* Gentle learning curve
* Numerous enjoyable extras
* Low price point

The Bad:
* Takes a long time to reach challenging levels (PC, Plants vs Zombies) 8.5/10
